A Harris Burdick Mystery: A Strange Day in July

Image result for strange day in july  The young boy Andrew and his younger sister Amy strutted down the pathway to the little pond.  Andrew and Amy’s favorite thing to do is skip rocks on spare time.  Amy skipped one rock and it hit the water eight times.  ” Beet that” said Amy to Andrew.  Andrew threw two rocks and the hit the water softly seven times each.  ”AW” said Andrew. He took one last throw. He threw with all his might but the third stone came skipping back. The black stone sank to the muddy bottom. ”Oh my gosh” they said.  Ever since that day the pond has never been the same.
